This child, scarcely 24 hours old, was taken to an orphans' home at Des Moines, and when she was about 20 days old she was adopted by Mr. and Mrs. August Gelhaus, Ledyard. . As the years passed no trace was found of the child's relatives, but on the 14th of July this year her husband, Willlma Poppe, went to the orphans' home, and found the records of adoption. Then he vis ited the state vital statistics de parment, and there' procured a rec ord of his wife's birth. Having these documents, Mr I Poppe drove to Nevada and con jtinued the search; and there h j found not only the mother of hi wife, but a sister, uncles, an aunt great-uncles, great-aunts, and grandmother. The search happily ended, Satur day, July 22, was set for a reun ion, and It took place at Granc mother Pryor's, where Mrs. Poppe for the first time, met her mothe her sister, Hazel Eller, Ames, an an uncle, Harry Pryor, also great-uncle and • great-aunt, of Nevada, and an aunt from Chicago, besides many friends of the family.

Forty me'm- ers attended and heard the presl- ent's radio plea for support of the National Industrial iRecovery Act, nown from the initials of the title words as "NIRA." A telegram conveying the club's ndorsement was ordered sent to .he president, and It was dispatch- d Tuesday morning. The message ollowa: 'resident Roosevelt "he White House Washington D C The Algona (Iowa) Community club in a general meeting las night approved the blanket code and recommended that its member conform to its provisions and ac ;ively assist in forming codes fo individual industries. A resolutio: ;o that effect was passed immedl ately following your radio address which was enjoyed by the group. Algona Community Club. Impromptu remarks on the act were given by H. J. Rice, L. E. Linnan, W. C. Dewel, H. R. Sorensen, Judge Quarton, P. J. Chrls- tensen, T. H. Chrischilles, club president, and others. President Roosevelt's broadcast was received via the Country club's radio. INIRA endeavors to put more men to work by shortening hours of men now working without reducing their pay. The idea is that this will keep up present purchasing power, make additional help necessary to run the factories and workshops of the country, and cut down unemployment: Collection of Free's Poems Is Requested Mrs. George H. Free recently received from T. J. Fltzpatrlck, of the Botany chair, State University, Lincoln, Neb,, a letter addressed to her deceased husband. Professor Pltzpatrlck said lie had come across a booklet of Masonic poems which Mr. Tree's work was exemplified, and he wanted a copy of Mr. Free's collected poems If -a volume had been printed. Mrs. Free replied that there Is no printed volume, but that she has Mr. Free'B leather.covered ring binder In which he filed typed copies of nearly all his poems. Whether Professor Fltzpatrlck Is compiling an anthology of amateur verse Is-.-not,, known here. Mr. Free's work, before his death, appeared in anthologies, and many of hist poems traveled from coast to coast and back In newspapers—and no doubt are still traveling. WEST BEND K'BALLERS TO PLAY JERE TONIGHT A West Bend kittenball team will play here this evening at 6:30 against a picked team which went to West Bend Sunday and won, 5-3. "Von" Rising pitched that game for Algona, and It was the first game he ever pitched. In regular league games in the last week, Gamble's won a game from RCA, 8-6, last week Wednesday. Monday evening'the Phillips team defeated RCA,;9-1, and '"•— day evening' Skelly fan over Advertisers, 12-0.

It caused the closing of the Chicago grain exchange Friday for the third time since the Civil war/ The exchange was closed Friday and Saturday, but was reopened Monday, with the market at the Thursday level by government order. Trading at prices lower than Thursday's closing quotations was >rohiblted. Corn dropped in two days from a Ugh of 60 and 51c oh farms here ;o a low of 32 and 33c, and oats ;obogganed from 38c to 24c.

A slot machine and another gambling machine were also taken at Lauritzen's. Sheriff Dahlhauser was called to Fenton Tuesday morning by a report that ah oil station and two bulk oil stations had been entered. The station was the Standard Oil's, and one of the bulk stations was also the company's, but the. other belongs to another company. The locks were all broken off. A truck left in front of one of - the bulk stations was drained of ten gallons of gas, and this was all that was found missing. Some gas may have been drained from one of the large tanks, but not enough to be noticed. The theft was made at night. The sheriff was called to Swea City Monday morning, when the theft of an 8-gal. can and a 3-gal. pall of cream was reported. They were taken from a cooling tank in a well at the E. C. Peterson farm, a mile north.of Swea'City. >: - . • Last Thursday night ;the new Mr. Pletch to Ames to catch a train, and they were en route home when the accident occurred.

Mr. Gardner's son David waited on them.. The car was a 1930 gray Chevrolet coach carrying .the number 7713662. Suspicion is Aroused. Young Gardner became auspic* ious when he noticed that the engine was not stopped and that the/ occupants of the car seemed. nerr-> ous and anxious to get away. Another circumstance arousing suspicion was the fact that the driver had dried blood On his face*. notably his chin, and that his Jetfc arm was done up in a flour sack. .Besides, the other man was' in the rear of the car, his body on thfr floor, with Just his head resting oit the seat. .£t\ ' 3 the true!: in front, missing the trailer. It then glanced off the truck, and ran into the ditch, where it landed right side up. The body of the car was not seriously damaged. Damages to the motor have not been estimated. Under a new law a truck must carry flares to set out on each side when it becomes stalled after night. The Brady truck was not so equipped, and some action may be taken as a result. A truck is also required to have half Its width off the paving when It stops, but it.appears thatfln this ca'se'-the truck stalled 'so suddenly that the driver did not have time to drive off, for the truck's whole width was on the paving. *- TWO SEXTON MEN HURT WHEN W TIPS OVER ; Car's Number Taken.

He was bloody, and Sex(»n, July 15— Carl Avery and Mark Dana suffered cuts and bruises, when a truck in which they were riding tipped over in a ditch a half mile east of Sexton Saturday morning at 4 o'clock. A rear tire blowout caused the accident. The truck was from Nashua, owned by Clark .Walsh, who runs a feed shop. It was taking a double- deck load with 305 pigs from South Dakota to Plainfield, Iowa. The injured men : were' taken to Algona for medical, treatment by a Decker meat truck from Mason City. Eight pigs were killed, and 240 were later found in the road ous' D. H. Goeders, Algona, as a member of he state fish and game commission, was won by Goeders in the.Polk county district court Monday, when an order waa granted restraining the state executive council from proceeding with a hearing on the petition for removal. ..The hearing had been set lot yesterday. ' The ruling was on the question of Goeders' appointment as a democrat by Governor Turner, the Goeders attorneys claiming that the council had no power to review the act of either Governor Turner or the state senate, which approved the appointment.
